This is AWESOME!!! I might have to get this model if it's anything like this painting. This is just fantastic! Cobra Commander looks menacing and powerful. Even without the eyes visible (most artists choose the hood over the helmet for dramatic poses) I can imagine his ice-cold, menacing stare. The globe is a great touch, as is the snake staff. (He looks like he's gripping the heck out of it. ) And the textures... wow! I could reach out and touch them, they look so lifelike.
I do... if I say so myself. I've been a Joe/Cobra fan for over 10 years, and I've been collecting action figures and the original comics for almost as long.
Once again, I think you nailed the representation of the character! It's just awesome. It can't be said enough.
Oh, cool! Do you happen to know what the exact name of the figure is? I looked at the sideshow site but didn't know which one I should be looking at...
You're most welcome.
